Our review: Silver-gold in color, this wine has aromas of tropical fruit (pineapple) and lemongrass. Light and crisp on the palate, there's a nice balance between the fruit flavors and a mild acidity. There's a touch of spice in the finish.

Our rating: This is a rather pleasant wine, not terribly complex but versatile with respect to pairing. We served our bottle with an appetizer course, a good choice, but most cuisines would benefit from its inclusion in the menu. We rate it well Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: None. There is no information about this wine on the winery website.
